Lines and wrinkles and grays OH MY! Big time bummer! It started for me when I turned 30, but my aunt was completely silver by the time she was old enough to drink at a bar. Hair color changes as we age, turning gray and then white through a process called achromotrichia. We’re all going to go through it. By the age of 40, nearly 50% of Americans have some wiry strands that seem to have a mind of their own. Some people are actually born with gray hair because of a genetic quirk.
